Barbour County Escaped Inmate

The search continues Thursday for an inmate who escaped from the Barbour County Jail.

Thirty-four-year-old Kevin Hearin walked through a fire exit and climbed a chain link fence Sunday night.

Jail officials say the fire exit door was supposed to be locked, but was not.

Hearin was being held for violating his probation on an earlier assault charge.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts should contact the Barbour County Sheriff's Office at 334-775-1128.
